*The TLC Plan from Activia: Part Five

Well everybody, today is the FINAL day of my TLC Plan - I can't believe it is here! After all of the planning, shopping, cooking and cleaning, the 14 days are (very nearly) over; all I have left is my lunch, dinner and afternoon snack. Tomorrow I will publish my thoughts on how the diet has gone as a whole, but for today, here is Week Two's meal plan.

Day Eight

Breakfast: Peanut Butter and Banana on Toast - I enjoyed this breakfast so much last week that I chose it again to start this week!

Snack: Sultana, Hazelnut and Oat Cookies - Click here to see my thoughts on these (*Hint* they're delicious!)

Lunch: Tomato with a Bagel - Very filling and satisfying.

Snack: Hummus with Sugar Snap Peas - Nice and easy, only I used carrots instead of peas.

Dinner: Penne Pasta with Pesto and Broccoli - Although this was alright, I think I'd prefer it as a Summer meal.

Day Nine

Breakfast: Toast with Jam - A simple, classic breakfast teamed with a yoghurt; you can't go wrong!

Snack: Sultana, Hazelnut and Oat Cookies.

Lunch: Italian Pasta Tricolour Salad - I had this a couple of times last week and I think it's a simple, and most definitely healthy, lunch. Cook pasta, mix it with green pesto and serve with rocket, cherry tomatoes and mozzarella... simple!

Snack: Cheesy Tomato Toast

Dinner: Turkey in Black Bean Sauce - This is another one of my big surprises of the plan; again, I was so impressed with this meal! This is the first time I have tried to make this, and I used chicken instead of Turkey, but it was very easy to make and I really did enjoy eating this. And the Vanilla Intensely Creamy yoghurts are beautiful!

Day 10

Breakfast: BLT Bagel -  Considering I have never really given bagels a chance, they have been one of my favourite foods on this plan. A wholemeal bagel, toasted, with lean bacon, lettuce and tomato and a tiny bit of mayo; the healthiest, but still tasty, bacon butty you'll find!

Snack: Banana and Mixed Berry Smoothie - delicious.

Lunch: Veggie Club Sandwich - I really love these sandwiches! Last week I had the Chicken version, but this one consists of cheese, red onion, lettuce, tomato and cucumber in between three slices of wholemeal bread.

Snack: Strawberries with Dark Chocolate - such a treat!

Dinner: Gnocchi with Chicken - I have never tried gnocchi before but have always wanted to, and I am so pleased this has given me the chance! I will admit, I did think it was pasta until I bought it and realised it is, in fact, Italian potato dumlings... They are very weird little things but I like them, and the tomato and chicken accompaniment was delicous too.

Day 11

 Breakfast: Muesli with Blueberries with Pouring Yoghurt

Snack: Snackpot with Walnuts - a slight change here; I had hazelnuts instead of walnuts as I had some left over from the cookies... but it's OK because they're rich in Vitamin E!

Lunch: Chicken and Avo sandwich - Again, I left out the avacado like last week, but it is still one awesome sandwich!

Snack: Tzatziki, breadticks and veggies - I admit it, I missed this snack, but that is because the lovely @andyandem came round for...

Dinner: Veggie Pizza - Yes! Homemade pizza again (minus the peppers) along with a side salad.

Day 12

Breakfast: Muesli with Pouring Yoghurt and Blueberries - Blueberries are a superfood, so why not make the most of them?

Snack: Tasty Salad Bowl - Unfortunately I had to give this a miss as I forgot to put it in the fridge at work and so, by 11am, it tasted a bit... awful!

Lunch: Roast Chicken Pasta Salad - The picture above looks different to the recipe; cook chicken and pasta and mix them both together with some tomato pesto and it's done!

Snack: Cheesy Tomato Toast

Dinner: Broccoli and Walnut Tagliatelle - I'm not quite sure what happened here; on my list (which I written to plan my shopping trip), I had Veggie Fajitas down as Friday's meal... but I'm not complaining because I do LOVE those fajitas!

Day 13

Breakfast: Traditional Cooked Breakfast

Snack: Snackpot with Almonds - again, I had hazelnuts instead!

Lunch: Tomato Soup with a Bagel

Snack: Fresh Summer Fruits - always a delight!

Dinner: Creamy Garlic Mushroom Pasta - still so impressed with this meal!

Day 14

Breakfast: Banana Pancakes - I was a little bit experimental with this meal; I used wholemeal self-raising flour (genuine mistake!) to make the batter and, for the topping, I used a forest fruits yoghurt instead of rhubarb like the recipe suggests, but it was still lovely.

Snack: Snackpot and Peanut Butter Toast - A little bit filling for a snack but I like it!

Lunch: Veggie Club Sandwich - I am going to make this as soon as I have finished writing this post...

Snack: Hummus with Sugar Snap Peas - Again, I used carrot instead of sugar snap peas.

Dinner: Gnocchi with Chicken - I'm looking forward to this!

As I said above, tomorrow I will be rounding-up this experience as a whole; I am quite surprised with what I've found! If you have liked any of my TLC posts and are considering doing this plan, then you'll definitely have to check out tomorrow's post!

Now... it's time to make sandwiches!
